Abstract

Transverse mode control of an all-solid-state laser using an intracavity adaptive-optic mirror was presented. A high-reflector was used as an output coupler giving 5 mW output when optimized without the AO mirror. Adjustment of all actuators allowed the mode quality to be optimized with 7 mW output power.
